Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds

So…to explain….

The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image. If you focus closely on your subject and use a wide aperture, your photograph’s background will also be beautifully blurred in that blank space. The blurred area behind your focal point is referred to as bokeh, and when executed well, it adds depth and artistry to an otherwise simplistic photograph.

There is another part to the rule of thirds and that is…..

The Rule of Thirds is also a photography concept in which three photos are shown together and never alone! This group of three is referred to as bonkeh or bonkehs if there are several groups of three photos. The photographers can themselves claim to be bonkehs when using this technique!

You live and learn eh!

For other bokehs and bonkehs visit here!

That’s All!

And she started to sing!!

And she started to sing!!

And this is what she sang…..

With tuppence for paper and strings, You can have your own set of wings, With your feet on the ground, You’re a bird in a flight, With your fist holding tight, To the string of your kite. Oh, oh, oh! Let’s go fly a kite,Up to the highest height! Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring, Up through the atmosphere, Up where the air is clear,

Oh, let’s go fly a kite!

And just look what happened…..

How could Kevin the Kite resist such singing!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale 2

This week’s  Weekly Photo Challenge theme is Scale and the suggestion is to ‘insert something into a scene to highlight size’.

Ahem……

Boris the Black-headed Gull (whilst being patient for his summer black head to appear) decided to have some fun with his rather small cousin, Beanie the Black-headed Gull! Boris managed to persuade Beanie that it would be great fun if he tried to to do some wing walking using his small cousin as the wing on such a bright and beautiful sunny day in Marlow!

All went well for a while until Beanie could hold Boris up no longer and…..

Fell head first into the River Thames barely missing his equally small brother Bert.
